Laura W. Roberts


Laura Whitaker Roberts, 92, widow of Donald Roberts, died Sunday, June 2, 2013.

Born in Sayre, PA, she was the only child of the late Frederick and Carolyn McKinney Whitaker.

She graduated from Vassar College with a BS degree in Botany. Music was a large part of Laura's life; she played the cello and piano. In Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, where she raised her family, she was an active member in the Dutch First Reformed Church.

As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, she generated warmth with a loving, caring spirit.

Surviving are a daughter, Carolyn (Edward) Uprichard of Travelers Rest, SC; son, John (Nancy) D. Roberts of Portsmouth, RI; grandchildren, Susan and John Uprichard, Scott Roberts and Erin Roberts Keysor; great grandchildren, Matthew, Katherine, Megan and Caroline Uprichard, and Ethan and Seth Roberts and Henry and Rose Whitaker Keysor; and many nieces and nephews in the extended Herrling and Schaal families. Laura was predeceased by a son, Henry "Bob" Whitaker Roberts.

Memorial services will be held at a later date with burial in Locust Grove Cemetery, Gloucester, MA.
